More Sound of Drowning released

Comic creator Paul O’Connell, creator of cult comic book The Sound of Drowning, has a brand new issue (#10! double figures! ) out now.

“It’s a non-linear comic book inspired by those kids ‘Choose Your Own Adventure’ stories,” he says, “co-written with Laura O’Callaghan-White and just a dash of Harry sauce.”

Paul, whose “Air Diana” strip was one of 30 shortlisted in the 2007 ROK Comics Humour Competition, also has some new strips on the soundofdrowning web site.

Paul will be selling the new comic and other bits and pieces in the small presss market at the London ICA Comica event, curated by Paul Gravett.
